I saw a programme called "Madness on the Motorway" which I thought would probably be one of those cops chasing stupid drivers shows. Not quite.
It started with 2 Swedish Twins walking down the middle of a motorway (freeway) and the police bringing them to the side for safety - the police happen to have a TV crew with them. So far, so meh.

Suddenly one of them leaps out in front of a lorry (truck) and goes under the wheels. :-o Then her sister leaps headfirst into a car doing 50-70mph!

The truck twin is still alive, but "her legs have exploded" according to the policeman. She starts clawing, spitting and punching the policeman who is trying to help her. The other twin is out cold, but as she regains conciousness she punches the policewoman helping her in the face and jumps across the central barrier into oncoming traffic. Eventually she is wrestled to the ground by 6 blokes and sedated.

Neither of them have any drugs or other substances in their blood. The truck twin is taken to hospital for treatment, the other twin is arrested and released after a day (another fine example of the British legal system :cuss: ).

She talks a complete stranger into giving her a bed for the night, then stabs him to death. She proceeds to walk away with a club hammer smashing herself in the head. A passerby grabs the hammer off her (not realising that she'd just killed someone) so she smacks him in the head with a roof tile she happens to be carrying! Paramedics arrive to help her (again they don't know she is a killer) so she runs away and jumps off a road bridge onto a busy A-road (fast road) breaking both her ankles and fracturing her skull.

She is arrested and taken to court. A prosecution and defence psychiatrist both decide she is sane, so both claim she had some sort of temporary insanity. She refuses to say anything or explain anything so is jailed for manslaughter (5 years). Her sister goes back to live in the US.


WTF!

Yeah Tonka. My brother had told me the 1st part of the story last year. So when I saw it come on, I couldn't resist watching it.
OMFG... Unless you see it, you cannot believe it. If they isolate that gene, they could make human terminators!!!
Un*******believable.
I missed shootytime because of it tho'

Stains, don't think you'd have missed much shooty time, servers were down most of yesterday. I watched some of that as well. It was just fucking weird! 5 years for murder + assault and putting many motorists lives at risk is a fucking joke. She'll not even serve half of that! I also watched The 'boring' Bill before that and random stuff on Discovery and Nat Geo afterwards. Can't wait to get my SKY HD ordered next month.

Very real mate. The police had a camera crew with them exactly because they were doing one of those cops chasing stupid drivers shows.

Tonight I will be watching one of my guilty pleasures, the season finale to So You Think You Can Dance. My wife and I watched the first three seasons every week, but stopped watching until this season. I used to think dancing was kind of, well, gay, but some of the routines on that show are amazing, all the people are amazing athletes, and it doesn't hurt that the females on the show are SUPER HOT! :x Lauren and Anya :x

So I am upstairs on the Mac watching the footy via www.tvcatchup.com (http://www.tvcatchup.com) (very useful for brits- free tv streamed 2 seconds later).

As usual in the UK we get 1 or 2 seasons of a great US show, and then it gets bought out by Sky (pay-tv). Oh well... no more Sookey for me.

Operation Repo is completely scripted. It even says somewhere when the show starts that the stuff you see is "based" on real incidents, although I even doubt that claim. You are right, the acting is horrible. One of the worst scripted "reality" TV shows on the air, after the Bachelor and all those other bullshit dating shows.

I love Pawn Stars. I like seeing what is brought into the store as often it is historically significant or just bizarre. Even then, I think that show is scripted to an extent as they always seem to know what is coming into the store before it actually comes in.

Another show that is similar but can be hit and miss is American Pickers where two guys go around the country and buy "junk" from people that they try to turn around for a profit. Sometimes they find some really cool stuff, but other times all you see them do is buy old oil cans and other worthless crap which they list a "valued" price for but I have a hard time believing anyone buys that garbage.

johnboy
08-24-2010, 03:06 PM
I've tried watching Pawn stars on Nat Geo or Discovery (whichever channel it's on), thinking it would be my kind of thing. But I'm not keen on it at all. Got to watch the last two parts of 'The Bill' tonight and probably next week. The Bill for those that don't know is a very long running cop show here in the UK. It has been axed to cut costs.

My wife and I refuse to pay the ridiculous prices for Cable or Dish so we only have 3 channels. Mostly watch Sienfeld on DVD or King of Queens on DVD. Other than that we like Big Bang Theory and Rules of Engagement, but my favorite show ever is Trigger Happy TV, to bad I cannot find it on DVD.

I used to watch it on Comedy Central and I loved it, they tried to bring it over here but it flopped hardcore. The best skit was the giant rat! They call in an exterminator and tell him there is a giant rat upstairs and he is all ready to go and goes up stairs and there's a dude in a huge rat suit lying on the couch lol.

Be careful which DVD you get from England, because their standard DVD's are not formatted to the DVD players over here. I only know this because when my daughter was younger she was into "Postman Pat". We couldn't find DVD's over here for sale, so we tracked some down that we could get shipped from the UK. I read the little summary at the bottom and said was not compatible with US standard DVD players. Why the heck would they be formatted different in the first place. I had assumed up to that time that stuff like that was universal.

Good point, well made. Stupid region locking on DVDs - what is the point!
You can unlock DVD players and I think there is a way of unlocking PS2's too. Don't know about PS3.

I'll have a think about this, and see if there is anything I can figure out.


Apparently you can do this to unlock region codes, but it is probably just some Internet BS:

Press and hold select for 3 seconds, then enter 6, 6, 7, 4, 6, 2 on the PS3 Bluetooth remote.

There's something you can actually buy for the ps2 to unlock it. There may be some kind of code but I think most of them are BS.

Brendon won the POV. Brittney (who is smokin' hot) was devastated. The Brigade was able to convince Brittney to put Matt up on the block as a replacement nominee. Matt still thinks he is a member of the Brigade. The Brigade has pretty much added Brendon to their alliance. Matt threw his best friend in the house under the bus. Matt is fucked and about to get voted out of the house tonight barring a miracle.

Double eviction night. Matt was voted out as expected. Hayden pulled out the HOH in the next comp. He put up Brendon and Ragen. He and the Brigade told Brendon that he would be safe and if Ragen won the POV that they would put up Brittney and vote her out. Ragen ended up winning the POV and they did put up Brittney (who is smokin' hot BTW). But they all voted Brendon out of the house unanimously.

Can't wait until Sunday for the next HOH comp.

Last night we watched "Rules of Engagement". One of our fav new'ish sitcoms. Very funny.

The Event is just trying to be another Lost and man did it fail. It actually reminded me of Flash Forward a little (under-rated show) but something was just off about it. I gave up on Chase after 10 minutes and flipped on the Xbox.
The only new show to come out recently that I like is The Glades. Another cop show, but pretty damn funny. And the lead Matt Passmore is hilarious, I love smartass characters.

Wire season 1 is incredible. We just finished it on Netflix, and need to finish the last season of Battlestar Galactica before we start Wire season 2. But the Wire will change the way you think about urban life and crime, or at least it did for me. I can't watch other movies/shows that purport to show life in the 'hood after watching even just one season of The Wire.

I used to like watching Deadliest Catch but I'm finding this series hard to get into but I WILL be watching it on Tues, I already know what happens but I still want to watch it and I know I will cry my freakin' eyes out.

Louis Theroux: Miami Mega Jail


In the first episode of this two-part series, Louis spends time in one of the most notorious sections of Miami County Jail: the fifth and sixth floor of 'Main Jail', where many of the most volatile inmates are incarcerated.
Held in large cage-like dwellings for up to 24 men, the inmates have developed a strange and violent jail culture. The men - who remain in the cells almost all the time and may only leave for yard time twice a week - live under the sway of a gladiatorial code. They fight each other for food, for status, and often just to pass the endless hours of confinement. Trips to the infirmary are a frequent occurrence as inmates are viciously attacked and beaten, but the guards say they are powerless to end the abuse.

Erm...how to explain that show. Well you see 200 years ago, we tried to clean this place up. Sent a few boats over to Oz, lets just say we couldn't quite fit 'em all in. Which brings us nicely to shows like this!! (did I insult enough ethnic groups there ;) )

Just kidding. Gypsies get a pretty bad press over here. Because they have the 'right to roam' and set up massive settlements of mobile homes, whilst enjoying living tax free. Whilst the rest of us follow the line and get bent over by the government.
I grew up near a big gypsie camp, and they would cause so much trouble (they once beat up a mate and pissed on him) and the police can't touch them.
Apart from that, they're real nice people! :-"

:cuss: :cuss: Don't get me started about 'PIKEYS' there are true Gypsies but not many and there are the 'Travellers' or 'Pikeys' who say they are 'Gypsies' as a retired Firefighter I have had a lot of experience with them, not much of it any good!

On average we would deal with 4 car fires every night that were cars stolen by the 'Pikeys' stripped of anything valuable then torched, they would booby trap some of them with propane cyclinders to try and blow us up, they would shoot at us if we went near their sites, they would try to attack us with bricks, bottles and baseball bats if we were dealing with one of their incidents near to their caravans, they stole lead of the roofs of schools, health centres and churches, steal diesel from farm diesel tanks and break into the farmhouses when the families were out on the land, they would tramp all over farm land chasing hares with longdogs and betting on the outcome, usually the hare getting torn to pieces by their dogs and, attack anyone who got anywhere near the 'sport' without an invite!!! We had to chain anything and everything to something solid and padlock all our gates every night to stop them stealing from us, oh yes including our dogs, that was another favourite to steal various breads of dog that they could make money from by selling or puppy farming from them! :-l X( :cuss:

I thought I'd better make my comments a little clearer.
I too refer to the "Pikey". As Red describes, they feel they can live outside of the law and give the rest of the travelling community a very bad name.
The traditional Romany Gypsy is a dying breed, and share few ideals with the people that Red & I have encountered over the years.

PS No offence to your neighbours Nuts. As I mentioned, I don't mean to tar them all with the same brush...

TonkaToys
06-06-2011, 07:28 AM
Watch Snatch to get a pretty good idea of what a Pikey is.

I'm guess not all gypsies are bad... but I haven't seen any evidence that convinces me to the contrary.


My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding shows you a disfunctional society within a society - one where girls as young as 5 seem to be taught to dress and dance like pole-dancers, where beauty is defined by riches, where not being married by the age of 16 is considered unusual and where befriending people from outside of your society is discouraged.

Nice.

Not so much last night, but a few moments ago.
Its that time of the year where we get nothing but festivals rammed down our throats on tv over here in the UK.
But http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00wmdqs had a superb documentary on the rise of the festival.
The standout part for me was the section on the emerging rave scene from 1989-1996. It was a period of my life that I will never forget (what I remember of it) and will never regret.
As a father of two boys, I can only hope they don't stray too far off the path. But in those seven years, I learnt more about myself than at any other time.
I know we all look back through rose tinted glasses, but those were special times.
Before the government introduced the Criminal Justice Act, therefor banning all illegal parties.
So now the kids just have the corporate festivals with high walls and safety barriers, with clean cut pop acts. I wonder when is the next cultural revolution?

That show was followed by Radioheads headline act at Glastonbury in '97. Outstanding.
I can't believe it was 15 years ago! Boy I feel old.

Seve was a great man and made a huge difference to European golf during my childhood.
And went on to create his finest legacy in his final years with his cancer foundation.
Many modern sportsmen could learn a thing or two from him.

Watched Appropriate Adult last night, which is based on the true story of a UK serial killer, Fred West (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_West), from the point of view of a social worker that was there during his police interviews.

Outstanding piece of drama about a horrendous topic, in which the actor Dominic West (who played Detective Jimmy McNulty in The Wire) manages to portray the killer as a simple minded, but charming man that seemed to care for his victims but who was being manipulated by his harpy of a wife.

Highly recommended.

Last night was the start of a new series, "Billy Connolly's Route 66"

I loved his other road trips, as he tends to go off the beaten track, to see the real locals.
He has such a genuine warmth that comes across in his interviews, and having seen him on stage, I can vouch that he is a comedy genius too.

Last night, he started in Chicago.
With some interesting features on the Speakeasies (who was to know Capone was responsible for milks 'sell-by' date).
Meeting artist Preston Jackson, and chewing the fat over some pretty hot topics.
Then hitting the great route down through Lincoln's hometown of Springfield onto St. Louis.
Eating pie and meeting the local peeps along the way.

While it is a tried & tested style of travelogue, its bright & breezy, made even better with Bill'y quick witted observations.

I think I will stick this series out, in the hope to see some of my MP buds in the background :cheers:

I (and I think Charlie did too) watched a new supernatural horror on BBC last night called 'The Fades'. I thought it was friggin' awesome, probably the best new British series in a long time! IMO.


The Fades is about a suburban schoolboy called Paul who cannot help noticing that the dead are far from dead and hang around his local streets and shopping centres. Paul's world soon becomes beset by the frenetic attentions of Neil an avenging warrior against those rather cross undead who want to kill people. Neil looks as if he's walked in off the set of Mad Max and his sidekick is an arse-kicking woman vicar

British terrestrial tv is just like waiting for buses! Nothing for ages, then it all comes along at once.

I gave 'The Fades' a chance too. The script was fresh and well acted out, with some very haunting visions to boot.

I also tried out the new series from the writers of the 'Peep Show', called 'Fresh Meat'. I personally doubt it will live up to that
Mitchell & Webb genius, but it did have a few funny lines peppered throughout and some of the female cast were easy on the eye.

Charlie, did you ever watch the whole series of The Fades? I just watched the last one tonight and I must say for a series that was aimed at older teens and young adults I really enjoyed it. Then again of course, I am still a young adult. Well young at heart anyway, I need to be to make up for my old man's body! Lol

Hey JB, I'm sure I'd posted a reply to this already.

Anyway it was a great series, and I was genuinely surprised when the person died in the final episode.

Peaky Blinders (http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/proginfo/2013/37/Peaky-Blinders.html)


Birmingham, 1919. Thomas Shelby is a war veteran, and head of feared gang, the Peaky Blinders. Named for their practice of sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps, they make money from illegal betting, protection and the black market.



I thought this was a brilliant piece of TV.
Superb acting, realistic set design, and a dark dark plot line that you know is just going to get bloody.

Outlander (Showtime series)

Wife and I love it. You have to watch it from the beginning though. The first 20 minutes of episode 1 are pretty slow (but essential to the story) and I almost lost interest, but since then it's been excellent up through episode 11 now.

We've been watching Outlander on Fridays since 12 Monkeys ended, but this week I vetoed it in favor of Penny Dreadful, we're a week behind on it, so I don't have much opinion on how Season 2 is going to go, but the first season was good.
Also watched iZombie, which despite being nothing like the comic it is based on, is a pretty fun show.
Saturdays are Orphan Black, though we had to stay up extra late to fit it in last night after our Movie, Dinner & Beers date night. So far this season of Orphan Black has been better than the current season of Game of Thrones.
I'm sure we'll fit Outlander in another night, will have some holes in the schedule with recent season finales. The wife loves it, I enjoy aspects of it, the history, the scenery, etc., but it definitely gets slow and a bit "romance novely" at times.

How is Limitless? On the subject of shows made out of movies, we finished up the second season of Dominion (based on Legion) last Wednesday, and started Minority Report last night. Seem to be quite a few of these continuing the story from not at all new movies.


We are currently busy with the awesome Sons of Anarchy. In season 5 now but things going slow at the moment especially after the disappointing death of Opie.

We made it all the way to season 06 I think and then just haven't gotten around to finishing it up after it got so depressing and not fun to watch. I had the attitude of "We made it this far, might as well finish". But the wife pretty much had it after what you mentioned in season 05, and then the pretty messed up events of the season 6 opener.

TV used to be social.
My (now) wife and I used to watch the X-Files with my (now) best-man and his (now) wife; it was traditionally a drinks and take-away night with a visit to the pub after. Ahh, the Halcyon days of pre-kids.

I'm looking forward to seeing the new series but now we've moved to opposite sides of London, there is no way we'd be able to meet up on a weekly basis - and that might impact on the enjoyment of the show more than any re-hashed storylines / aging actors (although Ms. Anderson still looks hot).

I've really been getting into the following two part series.
Seeing archive footage similar to what my own Grandpa experienced (in blue below).

Burma's Secret Jungle War with Joe Simpson -

Former mountaineer Joe Simpson travels to Inywa in Myanmar to retrace the WWII journey of his father, Ian, who served with the Chindits, the special forces who fought a harsh guerilla campaign behind Japanese lines in 1944.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It has motivated me to continue with my search into my Grandfathers Military Career.
This period of his life fills me with awe and admiration for what he achieved and the undertakings he did at such a young age.

Below is a photo of him with his Platoon (squatting centre front), inscriptions are as follows.


Chindits RE (Royal Engineer) Platoon, 34 (The Borders) Column, Ukrul Northern Burma 1943 – 44
At the time he was the Captain aged 24 – 25, in charge of 35 men with a Lieutenant and a couple of sergeants to support. A group of half a dozen of the sappers were known as the muleteers, which you can understand having seen that old footage in the documentary. The Royal Engineers of course were used for bridge and road building, which again you can understand was really difficult in those hot jungle conditions.

He also has other albums with items such as a small card for “Burial of the Dead”, which every officer carried in case of need, and my Grandpa “Kept in reverend memory of the two grand fellows below whom I buried at Langdan christian village near Ukrul, Burma July 1944 – Lieut Chapman and Cpl Stewart, both of 4th Bn The border Regiment”

Always a fan of Mr Hardy, although he is definitley milking his 'Laaandon Psycho' character to the max.

What everyone been watching lately? When I'm not forced to watch Curious George I have been watching the latest season of Homeland and Taboo.

Taboo

"a Sherlock Holmes-type detective, a bit more physical as well as smart, but who has that hyper-vigilance; a spiritual, hybrid shaman-cum-cannibal-serial-killer-type thing." - Greg Hardy

https://pmcvariety.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/taboo-tom-hardy-fx-e1479220234295.jpeg?w=670


Adventurer James Keziah Delaney, long believed to be dead, returns home to London from Africa in 1814 in order to inherit his late father's shipping empire. All is not what it seems, however, as Delaney encounters numerous enemies intent on making his life back in the United Kingdom very difficult. Focused on building a shipping empire to rival the imperious East India Company, Delaney's other wish to seek vengeance for his father's death means conspiracy, betrayal and bloodshed are also in the cards. As he works to accomplish that, Delaney must also navigate increasingly complex territories in order to avoid his own death sentence.

Homeland

When Marine Sgt. Nicholas Brody returns home following eight years in captivity, CIA agent Carrie Mathison thinks he has turned and is connected to a terror plot to be carried out on American soil, so she engages him in a dangerous game of cat and mouse that puts America's national security at risk. Later on, Carrie gets a promotion and returns to the front lines overseas. She is assigned to one of the CIA's most volatile and dangerous stations in the Middle East, where she is in the heart of battle in the war on terror. Years later, after being disillusioned and placing herself in a self-imposed exile in Berlin, Carrie becomes estranged from the CIA, eventually returning stateside where she works for a foundation providing aid to Muslims living in America.

I plan on getting to Taboo one of these days, looks like a good one. Homeland sort of lost me somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd season, always intended to pick it back up, but just haven't. At this point I'd like to just to answer my curiosity on how they've kept the show going this long, as the original storylines seemed like they'd have to reach one conclusion or the other within a couple seasons.

Shows in our weekly rotation I'm most enjoying right now: The Expanse (Season 2), Man In The High Castle (Season 2), Twin Peaks (Rewatch), Black Sails (Final Season), Vikings (Final Season??), and Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Season 1). Walking Dead started up again the other night, but at this point I sometimes feel like I am watching it more out of habit than anything else.

Vikings (Final Season??)

I don't know how it's even possible, but I only got started on Vikings a while ago. I'm heading onto Season 3 now. Crazy. I love it. See games do better our lives, thank you FOR HONOR!

Taboo is good; almost indecipherable in its confusing mysticism but full of engaging characters, beautiful cinematography (albeit grimy, grimy, grimy) and great acting.

Homeland series 1 and 2 were good, lost it on series 3.

Just started watching Preacher with the missus a week or two ago and somehow we are at the end of the season already! Another weird one, involving drunken vampires, homicidal angels and a character called Ass-Face

Will probably re-watch season one of High Castle as the missus didn't want to watch it originally, but now does... although first I might try her out on SS-GB which starts here on Sunday.

I questioned how the show would continue without Damian Lewis (Nick Brody) or how they would drag the story on....but they have a vast amount of intersting characters. Claire Danes, Randy Patinkin, and Rupert Friend are absolutely fantastic actors. The show is well written and has actually been getting better and better every season. Season 6 has started off slow so far but its starting to pick up. Can't wait for Sunday.

Speaking of food shows, I loved Rick Steins last series of 'Long Weekends' visiting the lesser known corners of Europe. He really explores the heart of the areas he visits and meets some wonderful locals with enormous passion for the food they serve.
Really made me want to catch the next flight out there.

Not sure if they're showing over the pond, but I saw some on Google Play for a charge.

So I decided to give Black Mirror a spin on Netflix.... WTF did I just watch? If you've seen the first episode of season one you'll know what I'm talking about. One of the most f---ed up things I've seen on tv. The other episodes are depressing but really well done. Anyone else seen it?

That bitch would've been dead, no F'ing way I'm having relations with an animal. I don't remember if they were able to determine if the finger that was sent to them was from the princess. I plan on watching the rest of the episodes but I think I'll have to do it moderation.

It's a good show, with each episode being a commentary about technology and our society. It can be a little depressing and best done one or two episodes at a time. So well done though.

I still haven't made it far into Black Mirrors. Definitely one I only feel in the mood for every now and again. Have watched 4 or 5 and all the episodes have been pretty good. I like that they vary in their subject matter or "point". Pretty crazy stuff, especially that first one.

For something completely different, if you haven't checked out AMC's Into the Badlands, you should. Now in season 2, this show is just plain entertaining. Post-apocalyptic martial arts badassery. Love it.

Into the Badlands is on my radar. I'm honestly very bad at watching tv shows... I'll watch a few episodes then take forever to continue or just lose interest. But that one for sure I want to check out. Now if I could only finish up House of Cards....

Enjoying Last Kingdom s2 and Line of Duty.

Just started wifey on Man In The High Castle to see if she wants to watch it - I've already watched s1.
She wasn't interested when I started watching, but now her mates have said it is pretty good so she wants to try it.

Watched the season 2 finale of Man in the High Castle last night.

I wasn't sure how this season would be, with the original showrunner leaving after s1, and s2 getting off to a slow start. But wow, it just got better and better and the finale was intense. Can't wait for s3.

Tonight is ep 2 of the new season of Doctor Who. I've been pretty disappointed the last few seasons, but this one started off great and I'm hoping they keep it up.

Season 2 of Peter Kay's Car Share.
On paper, it's a simple premise that shouldn't be funny. But it's simplicity is what makes it. With heartfelt sincerity and real human emotion coupled with some clever writing it continues to surprise me how much I love this show and the emotional attachment that I feel with the characters.
The 80's soundtrack rolls along in the background at the same pace as his driving, and the casting is inspired from Elbows Guy Garvey to hilarious transvestite Smurfs.

I cannot guarantee that the humour would translate across to all tastes but it certainly tickled me.

Car Share has ended now - what a poignant way to finish; it made me quite sad. What did you think Stainsy?

Line Of Duty has ended now - not as exciting a finale as previous years, but it certainly sets up the next series.

Last Kingdom finishes tonight - I keep wanting to Wikipedia the events, but I know it will spoil the story! I reckon Alfred and Uhtred and heading for a messy break-up.

Watched ep. 1 of American Gods on Amazon last night; crikey that was much more gory than I was expecting. Looks like it could be a good one, providing the blood soaked scenes don't turn my wife off the show.

I saw Ep4 and assumed that was the last in the series.

If so, the ending pretty much summed up unrequited love. That feeling that comes with a swift kick square in the bollocks!

Still, as short as the series was. I loved it.

Watched the second-to-last episode of this season's The Flash. We're one step closer to the season finale and zero steps closer to a logical story. That show has basically turned into a wiffleball; it's full of holes but still fun.

The season finale will determine whether I continue watching the show next season.

We finally ended up dropping that one, and the related shows a while back. Honestly it's the best of the bunch though, and I think it was mostly watching Arrow and it's downward slide into meh that did it. Flash was definitely still fun, but we decided to take a break from Arrow, Flash, and Shield as there were too many other things we were wanting to watch and didn't have time for.

At least Flash manages to mix things up to some extent. Arrow is pretty much the same plot every season. Save the city! And every season they just come up with some new nemesis who's out to destroy the city just for the sake of destroying the city. Once they pretty much broke up the gang and tried to build a new gang out of characters I couldn't bring myself to care about I quickly realized it's the kind of show that has no end, they'll just rinse and repeat until the ratings drop and it's no longer profitable. My favorite part for years had already been the flashbacks to Ollie's time on the island, but once they started doing things with that that contradicted the earlier story they'd created about that time... Well, it was like half a wiffleball, all the holes with none of the fun.

I loved the first two seasons of Fargo, but this third season is hitting it out of the park. Great acting and storytelling. Top notch.

And the super-hot Mary Elizabeth Winstead of course.

What is all the fuss about the latest incarnation of Doctor Who

So much chatter about this, both for and against having a female Doctor - this is my favourite, from Blink-182 lead vocalist Mark Hoppus (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-40626224):



Oh great a female Doctor Who. What next? Female real doctors? Female pilots? Female scientists? Female sisters and mothers? Female WOMEN?!



I personally cannot understand the controversy... what is this the 1950's?
